Permanent Magnets Market

Global Permanent Magnets Market to Expand 2x by 2031: Fact.MR Study

Published : 12 Aug 2021 Industry: Industrial Goods

The permanent magnets market is witnessing escalating growth, expected to reach US$ 34.4 Bn in 2021, concludes a recently published market research report by Fact.MR. The study estimates that revenues reach US$ 78 Bn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 8.5%.

From 2016 to 2020, global sales of permanent magnets expanded at around 8% CAGR, closing in at a revenue share of US$ 34 Bn by the end of the aforementioned historical period. Sales were downplayed across key sectors such as automotive amid the COVID-19 pandemic, attributed to strict curbs on factory operations, while industries such as the consumer electronics sustained demand.

Manufacturers are capitalizing on the Chinese market. According to various studies, China has been designated as the world’s leader in mining of rare earth ores, a key raw material needed for most magnets. Studies report that China mines over 55% of the world's rare earth ores needed for most magnets making it the biggest producer of rare earth magnets.

Key Takeaways from the Market Study

  • Global permanent magnets market is anticipated to add over 2x value by 2031 compared to 2021
  • By material, neodymium iron boron magnets are poised to reach nearly US$ 10 Bn by 2031
  • Automotive applications to expand the highest, registering a stellar 10.7% CAGR
  • Deployment for medical instruments manufacturing to expand dexterously at a CAGR of 9%
  • U.S market for permanent magnets likely to be valued at US$ 5 Bn by 2031
  • Asia to hold an impressive revenue share, accounting for 51% of global demand until 2031

“Technology transitions such as rollout of AI and IoT boosted the electric car manufacturing and automated machines for mining activities will encourage industry growth of permanent magnets until 2031,” comments a Fact.MR analyst.
